Prince Body Spray



There is always something rather satisfying about a new product coming out that showcases a scent in a different light. That's the beauty of Lush sometimes: each of their renditions tend to be very slightly different to what came out before, and while one fragrance might not have worked for you as a bath bomb or a shower jelly, might very well hit the spot as body lotion or bubble bar.

Such is the case with Prince Body Spray: a brand new release that sees the company offering fans of the discontinued Prince Shower Gel a chance to experience their much-loved smell all over again. Someone such as myself, who wasn't ever enamoured with the original scent anyway, this new body spray has allowed me appreciate an aroma that I had previously written off as being rather boring. 

Much like the aforementioned shower gel, a spray of this body spray unleashes a collaboration of different smells to contend with. Firstly, there's the zestiness of both the orange and neroli oils. These two combined offer a bitter, green-like fruity smell, that reminds me very much of the smell you get when peeling a fresh satsuma - that sweet citrus aroma with a slight tartness from the peel.

Next up, is the wonderful layer of vetivert that gives this scent a woody base to work from: offering a complexity that is somewhat lost in the shower gel format; and helping to ground this perfume enough so that it remains on the skin for a lot longer than it would if it was just the fruity components by themselves. Alongside this, the orange flower absolute adds a refreshing, crisp floral note that elevates all of the key components and helps Prince Body Spray to remain on the skin for a good couple of hours after application.

Unlike the shower gel, you can actually smell the richness of the ingredients present here, and there is something far more alluring and beautiful about this aroma in a body spray format. While the shower gel is rather flat and two dimensional, this latest release offers far more complexity on the skin.

While all of Lush's are unisex fragrances, this one would definitely appeal to men who like more masculine smells. As far as being a signature scent, I still think this would equate to being too 'boring' to grab anyone's attention in that manner. However, it's definitely both interesting and refreshing enough to use on a regular basis, and I am looking forward to using this during the hottest months of the year.
